Canon smartphone leak or an April Fools’ joke?

Pin It

A Greek magazine published an article for a new Canon smartphone with the following specifications:

  • Android KitKat 4.4
  • 8 core 64bit Snapdragon 615 with 8 ARM Cortex A53 inside
  • 8GB RAM
  • 64GB storage
  • CPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi
  • Double lens camera
  • The first camera has 1" sensor 12,2x8,8mm 20MP and 35mm equivalent lens
  • The second camera has 1/1,7" 10MP sensor with 3x liquid zoom lens (with liquid optical elements that change zoom range by piezoelectricity).

Stay tuned for more information. This could also be an early April Fools' joke.

    Don’t you mean “Greek” magazine ???

    • PhotoRumors

      Yes, Greek.


        Just saying… cause you wrote “Geek”…

        • PhotoRumors

          Yes I fixed it, sorry.


    Btw, the text reads:
    “The first Canon Smartphone – The Japanese counter-offensive begins”

    It kinda looks like the body of a Casio G’z One with the Kodak V570 dual lens.

  • Tracht

    Too lacking in basic styling to be real.

  • Marvin8

    Equivalent in appearance to a Pontiac Aztec.

  • Clint

    Way too forward thinking to be from Canon.

  • lord eels

    looks like it runs windows mobile

  • Linus

    Are you sure that isn’t a forthcoming Asus ROG smartphone.

    Finally: a phone you can play WOW on.
